I have had this service for at least 16 years. I can't wait to get another company. They have been milking me dry for years. I pay $109 per month for 18GB. I will be able to bundle my phone, internet and tv for that same price to include 100GB

I'm glad you're getting a land based internet option. Best of luck and enjoy it.

For many of us Viasat is our best option and, we are happy with our service. I'd jump on land based 100 Mbps in a hurry too, if I could but, that isn't an option for me, nor for many Viasat customers.

Brenda, I wonder why you've stayed with a company that's milking you dry for 16 years. That seems irrational.

Has Wildblue/Exede/Viasat been around 16 years? The answer maybe yes, but barely. Satellite internet itself has been around for 22 or 23 odds years, and Direcpc and shortly thereafter Starband were the players back in the day.

WildBlue's first satellite launched in 2004. The next year, Wildbluebegan delivering internet services to people in the rural U.S. who had no access to faster forms of internet connectivity. In 2009, WildBlue was acquired by Viasat, which was planning to launch a revolutionary new satellite.

So the answer is "no", she hasn't had it for 16 years.

She should switch to dialup. I hear it is faster than Viasat.
